The Department of Corrections, Partners for Progress, the Alaska Native Justice Center and Nine Star Employment and Education Services are collaborating to provide essential support to individuals leaving prison. Through a legislatively designated grant managed by the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, we have combined our programs into one and provide closely coordinated assistance and support at the Partners Reentry Center. Reentry participants receive assistance and are held accountable for their progress towards becoming productive citizens.
AFHC Homeless Assistance Program
Partners for Progress receives a Homeless Assistance Program grant from Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AFHC). We use this grant in collaboration with the Alaska Department of Corrections and other agencies to provide housing to those with no resources so that on the day they are released from prison, they walk into safe and sober housing.
